Pledges of Allegiance Flag Raising
USF Contemporary Art Museum, CAM

Facebook Event

Join USFCAM for the next flag-raising in the Pledges of Allegiance flag series presented by New York-based public art nonprofit Creative Time. Conceived in response to the current political climate, Pledges of Allegiance is a nationwide, year-long public art project featuring a serialized commission of flags created by acclaimed artists. Each month USFCAM is mounting a different artist-designed flag, which points to an issue the artist is passionate about, in coordination with Creative Time and in solidarity with other participating institutions nationally. USFCAM's participation in Pledges of Allegiance is made possible in part with generous support from the Gobioff Foundation.

Please contact CAM for more information or directions at (813) 974-4133 or email caminfo@admin.usf.edu.

Art Thursday: Restricted Curator's Tour
USF Contemporary Art Museum, CAM

Facebook Event

Tour a selection of seldom displayed art from USFCAM's permanent collection and discover why these intriguing artworks are rarely shown. The exhibition Restricted was group curated by the museum staff, and they will share their insights on the works of art and why, despite certain restrictions, they should be seen. Leslie Elsasser, Curator of Education, will lead the visit. The tour will begin at 6:30pm.

Restricted will display seldom seen but important works from the permanent collection of the USF Contemporary Art Museum, including paintings, prints, video, sculptures, installations, and archival material by leading artists such as Claes Oldenburg, John Cage, Lynda Benglis, Mernet Larsen, Burt Barr, and many others. All the works are restricted in the environments and contexts in which they can be displayed and this exhibition offers not only the opportunity to view these “hidden gems,” but a discussion of their care and the competing pressures of best museum practices.

Please contact CAM for more information or directions at (813) 974-4133 or email caminfo@admin.usf.edu.
